About Social NetWorth
Mulat Pinoy conducted the Social NetWorth workshop in February 2012. 24 participants from Manila, Calamba, Iloilo, General Santos City, Davao and Cebu came together to learn about population and development, and how to use social media for their advocacies. It was an exciting 4-day activity where we watched YouTube videos, talked about sex, the environment and youth, sang and danced, and thought about new ways to make the people around us think about serious population issues.
The Social NetWorth curriculum was designed by Data Tolentino-Canlas, a professor from the College of Mass Communication in the University of the Philippines in Diliman. Our speakers during this workshop included:
- Alvin Cloyd Dakis, Alliance of Young Nurse Leaders and Advocates
- Timothy James Dimacali, GMA News Online
- Romeo Dongeto, Philippine Legislators’ Committee on Population and Development
- Roshan Nandwani, BBDO-Guerrero Proximity
- Nimfa Ogena, UP Population Institute
- Oneal Rosero, Philippine Outpost of the 501st Legion
- Ana Santos, Sex and Sensibilities
- Thea Tolentino, Kids Ahoy
- Gregory Yan, WWF-Philippines
Our facilitators for the participants’ field activities were:
- Jan Cabanos
- Tin Macatulad Chua
- Riza Dizon
- Kath Mendoza
- Karen Borbon Seno
The workshop was held in Astoria Plaza Hotel, Pasig City.
The participants may have gone home, but the work continues. In this site you can find links to 9 blogs, each one the work of two or three of our participants, each one focusing on a population and development issue in their area. Each blog will show you what these young people think, what they want to do about the population problems in their hometowns, and how they are spreading their knowledge among their peers.
Now, Mulat Pinoy is bringing Social NetWorth to YOU. Mulat Pinoy will hold the Social NetWorth Regional Youth Forums in Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao. Stay tuned for the exact dates and venues.
